It is not a cheap proposition to turn your fifth generation Camero into a custom Trans-Am look alike, but should you have a Camaro in your possession it can be done by the skilful and experienced staff at the Trans Am Depot in Tallahassee Florida. The conversion will take about eight weeks with a base cost to you of $29,995.00 but they pay attention to all the details. They try to use original Pontiac performance parts but if they need to settle for an aftermarket reproduction item it will be revised to look as much like the original factory issue as possible before its installed. The cost of a 2013 Camaro equipped with all the goodies you will want in the automobile will run somewhere in the $50,000.00 upwards range and is equipped with the six speed standard transmission. This will make the minimum investment somewhere very close to $83,000.00 all totaled. The supercharger kit for the 6.2 liter engine kicks up the HP as well as the cost-$10,550.00, then an additional $7,500.00 for a “T” top would be a nice touch and is a detail that should not be ignored, but puts the ultimate bill topping $100.000,00. You should move quickly though because they do have a production limit on some custom components and I am certain there will be a cap on the number of Firebird units produced.
Generation five Camaro (2009-2015)
This Pontiac Trans-Am “could be car” is a work of art that sports an eye catching retro theme complete with the gold logo covering the hood. The exhaust notes are ear catching as well when you cruise the city streets. This car is equipped with LED’s for the tail and headlight configurations. A nice finishing touch is the appropriate downward sloped quad exhaust pipes.. The Hurst Edition trim features include front fender extractors, the shaker hood, and a long low tail section as well as the 20 inch gold colored aluminum rims to finish off the look.
The Hurst Edition interior has little of the flashy metallic trim used in the ‘70’s, but does have a Pontiac designed “T” roof,, classic black and gold color motif, new patterned seats, an upgraded instrument display, with a eight ball knob to grab ahold of on top of the short throw Hurst shift stick. Carbon fiber is extensively used for interior trim pieces and the sill plates as well; while the embroidered head rests give the interior an added flair.
The engine is a 6.2 liter V8 that, with the optional supercharger puts 575 horse power to the rear wheels and will do 0-60 mph in under 4.0 seconds. The supercharge kit will boost the engine to 720 hp but the big-meal-deal is a twin-turbo version developing 1,100 hp and this will insure you are the first one away from the light every time-almost.
The basic V8 Camaro is available as a two door coupe or a convertible and comes equipped with a six speed standard transmission with an optional six speed automatic available. The direct injection Pontiac 6.2 Liter engine puts out 432 hp (318 kW) a 5900 rpm and delivers 420 lb-ft of torque at 4600 rpm and gets 16/24 mpg city/hwy.
The changes made to the suspension are significant and include the high tec Eibach sway bar to help assure the handling is more refined than the basic fully equipped Camaro when you began the upgrade.
